Owner-Event Planner & Coordinator-Event Designer
Certified Wedding Planner
Tori did my children’s B’nai Mitvah last August. We were extremely happy with the whole process. Tori went above and beyond to help me get what I needed to make this day so special. From the Friday night services, the morning brunch and of course the FABULOUS evening soirée. No detail was over-looked. She even reminded me of time-frames and due dates. She’s VERY detail oriented. We got so many compliments on everything.

Wow! It is so hard to believe I have been planning ALL kinds of events for over 23 years now!!! I still feel the same passion and excitement when I work with my clients. I love a great party and celebration, so I renamed my company CELEBRATIONS BY TORI.
Although my love affair with Hawaii began in 1978, my wedding and event planning companies have been surviving and thriving in the wedding and event industry since 1998, creating unique milestone events and celebrations for people from all over the world.
You may know me as Hawaiian Island Wedding Planners, Hawaii Weddings by Tori Rogers, or Celebrations by Tori. Regardless of my name, I have always maintained the same core values since day 1. I have worked diligently to maintain an environment rich with kindness, generosity, transparency, honesty, and service. I have held myself and other professionals accountable for maintaining these values when creating my team for each event, because connections and relationships are important to me.
My passion for event planning began at the age of 9, when I planned a surprise anniversary party for my parents, and it continued through my teen and young adult years. As a teen I planned multiple conventions for teens across the Western United States, learning at an early age about how the hospitality industry functions. Every holiday was an opportunity to plan a theme party and go all out. I was the go-to person to plan parties, celebrations, and meetings for family and friends when I was involved with other careers. Event planning was my heart and soul, something I could intuitively do, and it did not matter that it required so much time and effort because I loved it.
As I am now well into adulthood, I am proud that my commitment to excellence, professionalism, and morality have earned me tremendous respect in the wedding industry, for which I am extremely grateful. My Type-A organization skills, relaxed and calm vibe, and professional work ethic are apparently a rare find and set me apart from many in the industry.
Combining creativity, passion, enthusiasm and positivity with my attention to detail, expertise, and connections with quality industry professionals, I approach each and every event with an open mind. Diligently working to enlist and maintain your trust throughout the planning process, I listen to your vision, get to know all about you, and offer insight and resources to customize and personalize your event experience. Coordination, Planning and Organization skills are in my DNA, and it's hard to contain my excitement about your event as I learn about our vision; my brain is instantly working to devise how I can bring your vision to life. Every celebration is a collaboration of accomplished professionals who create a
timeless experience that will most definitely exceed your expectations. There is nothing more rewarding than your
huge smiles and hearing your guests discuss how spectacular your event turned out.
As an expert in the industry, I have been featured in magazines, on various websites, and on television.
I have participated in Wedding of A Lifetime for Hawaii Bride and Groom Magazine several times,
where my services and the services of the involved venues and professionals were donated,
to provide the best day ever for the lucky winners.
Your event is about the story you want to share with us all. What is YOUR story and
how can I help you share it? Whether by email, text, phone, Skype or Zoom,
let's connect to plan YOUR fun and fabulous celebration! Contact us for a free consultation.
